Campus Ministry

St. Francis Inn Philadelphia

"What you receive as a gift, give as a gift,"

Jay Verzosa, Director of Campus Ministry - October 05, 2016

Fr. Mychal Judge, OFM would often say "What you receive as a gift, give as a gift," and so it has been one of the great blessings of my career in campus ministry to bring students to Saint Francis Inn Ministries in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. I first encountered the Inn as a student myself, on my first service trip, and over the years I have learned that, while there are many good places that feed the hungry and homeless, there is no place like Saint Francis Inn.

Hunger And Homelessness

Kerry Madden-Director of the Cornelian Service Corps - September 28, 2016

Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week is a national effort with an international focus. Days before Thanksgiving, Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week (HHAW) is an opportunity to remind us what we’re thankful for, while calling to mind those, who in our global society, are experiencing hunger and homelessness. Defined as a social movement, HHAW is a platform where everyone involved can play a part in highlighting injustices, and put pressure on lawmakers to make positive change that will unite our society.

Rosemont Students at Camp Twitch and Shout with American flag tank tops

Camp Twitch And Shout

Kerry Madden - August 04, 2016

This year, the Rosemont College Summer Service Immersion embarked on a true adventure. These 9 Rosemont students would be immersed in a world so very different from their own at Camp Twitch and Shout. Not only were they surrounded by thick Southern accents, without a Wawa in 300 miles, but soon they’d be introduced to the Camp Twitch and Shout community, which as its tongue in cheek name suggests, is a camp chock full of children and adults with Tourette Syndrome.

Cornelia Connelly and the Church Year

Sr. Jeanne - June 01, 2016

Every year the feasts of Pentecost, the Blessed Trinity, and Corpus Christi, and the Sacred Heart arrive on the calendar very near to Commencement, week after week. I noticed that fact many, many years ago when I was a student myself. Those feast days were a sign summer was close at last! Then as a young Religion teacher, I missed the chance to talk with students about these feasts since they were either gone or on the way out. If still there due to an early Easter, they were not willing to humor me telling them how deeply the Spirit lived within them and how amazing – to believe in one God with three natures, yet united and connected as one Love.
